Two young girls were tragically killed and five people were injured in a horrific car crash
in Dallas last night.
An older model Lincoln Continental was merging onto I-35 in Oak Cliff when it crashed into the rear of a dark blue Chevrolet Cavalier. It had run out of gas and was stopped in the right lane – without any emergency flashers, head lights, or other warnings.
Three adults and four children, all related, were in the relatively small Chevrolet. Two of the children, 4-year-old Tey-Onna Burnley and 1-year-old Nebriyah Bates, were pronounced dead at Children’s Hospital. A 5 year old and three adults, including the 22 year old driver (mother of three of the children) were critically injured.
What a sad story, but why the driver didn’t make sure everyone — especially the helpless children — were safely secured in car seats and seat belts, check her gas gauge, use her head lights and flashers, move her car off of the interstate, and get her pasengers to immediately exit the vehicle, God only knows. I hope He will watch out over these children and help the injured recover quickly.
On a more positive note, today I successfully resolved a Dallas automobile accident case that happened near this crash site. My client’s car was crashed into by an unlicensed 17 year old in a SUV who failed to yield the right of way at an intersection, careened into a stopped Dallas PD patrol car, and tried to flee (before being chased down by the cops). My client was extremely happy with the amount of money he will receive and joins the list of 100% satisfied clients I am delighted to represent.
